The seventh China International Comics and Games Expo (CCG Expo), China’s only large-scale animation and Internet gaming show, opens to the public today at China Pavilion in Shanghai.
According to ICS, more than 280 exhibitors are participating in this year’s exposition, a 50 percent increase on 2010. This year’s exhibitors include the Chinese animation and gaming industry’s big names such as Disney, Tencent and Shengda.
